My Radiesse Experience at Las Vegas Med Spa
Radiesse was a horrible experience for me. I went...
- 24 Jan 2010
I am 46 yrs old woman and wanted to soften the look of wrinkles forming in facial dimples (they used to be cute):)
48 hrs after the injection (while on a business trip) I started developing a HUGE rash and serious swelling, along w/difficulty breathing. When I arrived home 2 days later I went straight to a local Emergency Quick Care Center.
I was told that this was an allergic reaction to RADIESSE. I was prescribed steroids "60 ct", allergy meds and an epi pin in case I stopped breathing. The doctor told me that because this stuff is injected he could not promise that this reaction would not return.
It has been one month, the benefits I can't see at all (I had 1 syringe) the medspa threw me out on my heels when I asked for a refund (of course) and my skin is dry and flaky. ALL IN ALL A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
The Medspa, was uncaring. The owner said she wanted to "make it right" and wanted me to meet with their doctor to "access" but when I came in (per her request) but asked for a refund she told me to get out. How was she going to make it right? More RADIESSE? I don't think so.
